If they do what they did last Kickstarter, all Canadian orders will be picked and packed seperately from the US into two shipping crates, with one going to Vancouver (to ship to the western provinces) and one going to I think it was Ontario (to ship to the Eastern provinces).  Since they were all picked at the same time, wave number did not matter for us.

Just an FYI that the Core Zombies and the Halloween Pumpkin Knight and All Hallows Eve have been added to the Pledge Manager (but not the core add-on graphic).  The pack of 4 Zombies is $5, and the Halloween freebies are $3.

Incidentally, I wouldn’t be interested in historic ww2 guys. If they had weird sci-fi or steam punk elements the. I would be on board.

My guess is because reapers customers are generally in the fantasy market. Or at least the largest segment is.

 

 

like Burger King makes french fries because that is what their customers expect, even though countless others make french fries... but Burger King doesn’t make tacos because it’s not what they are known for, and others already do... or at least they shouldn’t make tacos....

 

or remember the MC pizza or the mclobster? Yeah I’m hungry again. What was I saying?

 

Ummmmm,

Sad thing is Reaper had it's foot in the door for Weird War 2 stuff with the that one game (whatever it was called). I think when it first came out, there wasn't that much Weird War 2 stuff out.

Oh, I'm not really too picky myself honestly - I'm very prone to just making up my own monsters anyway. I was just mostly curious I hadn't seen the complaints roll back around, and somewhat prepared that I might set it on the table and someone will say "that's not a real white dragon" and I have to say, "well, it now sets you on fire anyway".

 

::D:

 

I've long been of the opinion that a dragon needn't look anything like what a lay-PC might think it looks like. "It's called a red dragon because of the small red flash below its eyes. The black dragon lacks that flash and is thus entirely gray."

I find this line of reasoning bewildering, considering the much larger number of huge fantasy mini companies that Reaper competes with (successfully).  Why is it ok for them to compete with the likes of WizKids, GF9, Games Workshop, Iron Wind, Privateer, etc. but not ok for them to compete with Warlord, Victory Force, etc.?

 

Historicals are generally a low-volume business for any specific model. Reaper hasn't built a market presence in historicals and it would be an uphill slog to enter into that fray. OTOH, they are (and have been for decades) a major player in fantasy miniatures, so it makes sense to capitalize on that position.

 

Which is to say that it's not about "OK", it's about "unlikely".

Yes.  I miss Pimma as a number of people I was around called it (because they angled the McDonald's "M" to look like a "z".  And then I totally forgot about it, because it didn't last all that long.  I was much happier when Pizza Hut introduced the Panormous pizza...

... but ti's also a vastly different audience from who they usually sell to, with different expectations and a different kind of sculpting.

This right here is why I feel Reaper would be better off sticking to Weird War 2 over plain WW2.    The expectations of those looking to play Weird War 2 are more in line with Reaper's strengths.

They still shouldn't make it :pukey face:

I mean, that’s their promotional picture and it STILL looks revolting! Not even the food make up artists could make it look good!!

If I want cheap tacos, I'll just get Jack n Box' 2 for whatever it is these days. Usually with a cheap burger.

 

Must sleep! I still need to glue some minis to bases & then find all the minis for tonight's games!

I have the great temptation to grab that Wave 1 just because it's Wave 1, but.....I go against my instincts because I realize that I'm Canadian too. :mellow:

 

But then you could apologize for taking it!

"Reich of the Dead" as I recall.  Played a scenario at RCOn 2011.

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      The KS is starting off with bases, and SG's unlock the terrain:

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture.
